Security cannot be seen in isolation or as an ‘add on’ in any conversation. Cyber Security is an integral part of the experience for end users as well as data center managers. Security is taken very seriously and often bubbles up as a key consideration during boardroom conversations. Companies, therefore constantly need to maintain a strategic and tactical view on cyber security and how to mitigate the risks.
Edge devices are where the breach happens at most, hence having an integrated solution from a user experience, as well as manageability view point is critical for ensuring security operations.
